To me, gambling is an extremely strange reason to energize, possibly in support. On the two sides of the fence, I accept that the contentions made are overlooking significant issues to consider. 

For instance, a year ago’s gaming choice, the Christian chamber eagerly mobilized against gambling, suggesting the social ills that could result. Be that as it may, does gambling bring about households being surrendered, and men meandering the roads looking for a dollar? 

Or then again, is that an aftereffect of avarice, childishness, or the human want to want more and never be fulfilled? Would it be a good idea for us to have been in Rawson Square supplicating that the govern¬ment does not pass the Gambling Bill, or would it be advisable for us to have been in the avenues grieving the brokenness of the hearts in our nation? Gambling all by itself isn’t intrinsically malicious, however lamentably, we (us people) are. 

On the other side, the individuals who energized for the death of the bill referenced all the monetary advantages and the new openings that it will make. Despite the fact that it might add to the economy and include a couple of occupations to a great extent, the advantages are as a rule gravely overestimated. 

Each time somebody discusses its commitment to the economy, they toss out another astounding number–some odd a great many employments, about hardly any a huge number of dollars. No one truly knows since this has been an illicit industry for such a huge number of years. 

Besides, most express that this will just add to perhaps 1% of our GDP, and, in a nation wal¬lowing underwater, we need something a lot greater than a couple of number houses to spare us from sinking. 

My point of view on gambling depends on my introduction and present knowledge of the subject. Gambling has been available in the Bahamas for a long time, unbothered. 

My closely-held conviction is that there is an outrageous twofold standard toward the issue. Growing up, you see family, companions, and fam¬ily of companions participate in “playing numbers” with next to zero results. 

Be that as it may, it is unlawful for Bahamians to bet in BAHAMIAN the best live casino. Whatever the ethical issue, the administration ought to pick a flat outside and stick with it. 

Either there be positively no gambling in the Bahamas (ca¬sinos AND number houses), or they set enactment with the goal that everything is on one accord. 

In spite of the fact that I for one observe nothing amiss with CONTROLLED gambling, the Bible says in 1 Timothy 6:10 – “For the love of cash is the foundation of all detestable: which while some pined for after, they have blundered from the confidence, and punctured themselves through with numerous distresses.” 

Any icon that can go our concentration astray from God isn’t acceptable, and the ‘adoration for cash’ is a symbol and the underlying driver concerning why a few people are handily purchased. 

Such a lot of being stated, there are still experts on this issue. The nation is in a position where extra income would not harm (however extra income rarely hurt. 

Other than when it is unlawfully acquired). On the off chance that something should be possible with gambling to create income that doesn’t influence the Nation’s eyes from God, at that point, I consider that to be a positive and a lift to our economy. 

In any case, when that center is moved from God, The Bahamas won’t be in the way of God’s will as gambling will at that point become a wellspring of income for certain individuals as contradicting to reliance on God, and a decent living for a fair day’s compensation. Hence, the ethical quandary stays uncertain, and we keep on being the place we are starting today.
